Ten great Wonder Woman options

Megan Fox recently broke the hearts of comic fanboys across the world when she dispelled rumours of playing Wonder Woman in an upcoming reboot of the franchise, saying that she felt the character was boring and didn't work for her at all.

Well, we like you a little less now Megan, and here's a look at ten women who could be wondrous in the role:

Jessica Biel

She's got the best posterior in the business, and Biel seems to have a sense of humour to go with it. She's make a great Amazon warrior, and man we want her bad after seeing how hot she looked dressed as Jessica Rabbit.

Olivia Munn

This one's already dolled up as Wonder Woman for the cameras, albeit in spoof mode, but there's no mountain the ultra-cool Olivia can't scale and we'd totally buy into her playing the iconic superheroine.

She's the stunner we've wanted in a superheroine role for a while now, simply because of how she'd squeeze that statuesque bod into spandex. Also, with her current dark haired look, she's make a great WW -- the sort that'll drive Superman wild.

Keeley Hazell

She's the UK's latest hearthrob and with damned good reason. Bodacious beyond belief, not just would Keeley look remarkable in the outfit, she'd be scorching hot enough to make new generations fall in love with WW -- so what if she isn't a brunette?

Okay, so she's been Tomb Raider. And she's easily the most mature candidate on this list -- but come on. If Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman in Batman Returns got us purring, surely the actress who looked her best in Wanted can pull it off.

The reality show star might have her share of detractors, but that posterior is already the stuff of legend and she has an upper body stunning enough to almost equal it. Did anyone say goddess?

Lohan's seen her share of ups and downs in the last few years, but there's nothing like a big bad franchise movie to shake off all those paparazzi tags and if L-Lo can return to her voluptuous old self, we'd all stand in line for this one.

The yummiest thing in movies today seems like she can get away with anything, and we're confident that if she's in the title role, even a substandard director can get away with telling a clunky Wonder Woman origin story.

Kate Beckinsale

She's kicked vampire butt already in the Underworld flicks so she can surely hold her own against supervillains, but we're more into the idea of Kate because she dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween once and totally rocked the outfit. Go Google it.

For all those doubting this lady's inclusion to this list based on her age, think of her playing a stripper in The Wrestler. Tomei's as tough as she is hot, and we'd gladly submit to her lasso of truth. Heck, we'd be too distracted to lie!
